Description

A Swedish Dilemma examines Sweden's negative reaction to a growing minority population. Careful to qualify that Swedes did not react differently than other European societies, the book explores the country's xenophobic roots. Fear from and insecurity about the ramifications of multiculturalism led to increased violence and hostility toward refugees and immigrants.
